With the cost of vehicles on the rise, it just makes sense to look into one that can last seemingly forever. However, with the endless twists and turns of the internet, it can be hard to find the right information, let alone understand everything to make an informed decision.

People looking for a long-lasting vehicle have a monumental task before them. Conflicting reports and out there car jargon can confuse the average, everyday buyer. Thankfully, there are some companies out there that are trying to make things easier for ordinary people. ISeeCars.com conducted a study of more than 13.5 million cars to find out which models offered the longest-lasting cars.

The study focused on cars that could reach and go beyond 200,000 miles. On average, about 1.2% of those models reached the goal, though there were some very distinct winners (SUVs specifically seemed to be the heavy hitters). ISeeCars.com CEO Phong Ly said, “While today’s vehicles have the potential to reach 200,000 miles with proper maintenance and care, certain models are far more likely to achieve that milestone.”

Based on this information, we’ve compiled a list of 20 cars most likely to reach that 200k milestone. These cars were built to last, and they seem to be living up to that expectation. See if your car made the list.

20. Nissan Maxima
